5 Things That "Gossip Girl" Taught Me

"Destiny is for losers. It's just a lame excuse for letting things happen to you instead of making them happen."

5 Things That "Gossip Girl" Taught Me
The Odyssey Online

"Gossip Girl" is a television show that portrays residents of the Upper East Side in New York City and their lives throughout high school and young adulthood. Although the show teaches young men and women some horrible lessons (based on the fact that everyone drank alcohol and did drugs), there were some key points in the series that taught be valuable life lessons.

1. Blair taught me confidence:

Although Blair Waldorf can be a little overconfident sometimes, she still taught me to know my self-worth and believe in myself. Blair did not let anything get in her way when she had a dream, an idea, (or a scheme). She had a passion and a drive that was undeniably strong. Blair taught me that whenever people knock me down, I have to come back even stronger than before.

2. Dan taught me to stop caring what other people think of me:

Even though Dan shared his own struggle of figuring out who he truly was, he learned how to overcome the fear of people gossiping about him. He taught me to ignore others who brought me down, and he taught me to be myself no matter what others say.

3. Serena taught me to forgive and forget:

Sometimes it is necessary to rid the negative individuals from your life, but other times it is necessary to keep those friendships around and forgive them. People make mistakes and are only human. Serena taught me to see the best in people, but to also learn the difference between good friends and fake friends.

4. Nate taught me to never give up on anything (or anyone):

Nate always had his share of problems on "Gossip Girl," including family issues and sorting out the problems between all of his best friends. Through it all, he learned how to stay positive and work through everything instead of running away from all of his problems. When his friends had issues with one another, he tried his best to give them positive advice in order to bring them all together again.

5. Chuck taught me to never forget who I really am:

Life tends to throw you curveballs, and sometimes you may stray from your path, not knowing what to do. However, it is important to remember who you truly are. If you lose sight of yourself, you may go in the wrong direction.
